Good indexing of logs, cost-effective, and stable

What is our primary use case?

We use this solution for the Microsoft deployment of auto-management.

What is most valuable?

I like the indexing of the logs.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using ELK Logstash for one year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This product is quite stable and I've not seen any type of issue with it so far.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

With respect to scalability, you have to properly plan. Generally, I don't see any issues with scalability.

How are customer service and technical support?

We have not used technical support because we always had talent within the company for end-user support.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

This was a solution that our client chose, and they were not using a different one prior to this.

How was the initial setup?

I do not think that we had any issues with the deployment. Overall, I would say that the process is of medium complexity.

What about the implementation team?

The support team assisted us with the deployment. I don't think that we had any issues with the team.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Compared to other products such as Dynatrace, this is one of the cheaper options.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Our client provided us with this option after they had already been through a selection process.

What other advice do I have?

My advice is that this is a good product to use if you are financially contained, and you want to start with something small. Later, if you need to scale then you can look at other options.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
